Thoughtful bounce-pass


I’m sure that Robert August meant to be negative in his letter (Nov. 13) about buses exiting the Auburn Middle School. In my experience, however, the opposite situation has developed.

A large sampling of people must have read his letter, because I have noticed a remarkable increase in random acts of driver courtesy and kindness, not just to buses, but to pedestrians and other drivers.

I drive past the Auburn Middle School and Edward Little High School daily, and have ample time to observe the change.

I don’t consider that the city of Auburn has “dropped the ball,” as August stated. People have just bounce-passed it in a more constructive and thoughtful direction. But I thank August for alerting other drivers of a situation that can only get better.
